Cholesterol is a complex, wax-like substance (lipid) that the body needs for many vital processes. The brain, the nervous system, and all cell walls require cholesterol. It is used to produce bile acids which allow the body to absorb fats-soluble vitamins from the digestive tract. The body also uses cholesterol to make steroid hormones, and as a starting material for the synthesis of vitamin D.
An allegation that cholesterol consumed in food and developed by the liver or gastrointestinal tract or skin is building-up in arteries and is a prime source of sclerosis and heart diseases is not confirmed and has nothing common with the science. Study show that cholesterol marked with a radioactive tracing element ingested from food does not build-up in arterial cells.
Hence, cholesterol is not an agent of creating sclerosis. Similar studies show that in the internal arterial membrane cells glucose is converted into triglycerides 30 minutes after was digested, and into cholesterol after 40 minutes .
After starting the optimal nutrition, the level of the cholesterol depends on the level which you had at the beginning. The more the previous manner of eating differed from the optimal nutrition, the more the total cholesterol level may increase after the optimal nutrition has begun.
Vegetarians may have their cholesterol level increased, and visible improvement in their health, fitness and well being from the moment they have started optimal nutrition is progressing quickly. When they are asked what their perception of their health is, usually the response is very enthusiastic, but then immediately they mention the cholesterol level. Often, they are frightened when it's increased. This usually is understood as blocked arteries, and it takes a long time to explain to them that this is not always true.

I have had a heart attack. I have arteriosclerosis of my limbs, have had rheumatism for 35 years, and I am overweight. For many years I have been using various slimming diets at home and in sanatoria and also hypnotherapy but I have lost no weight at all.
I have been taking large quantities of medicine every day, and every day I have felt worse. My limbs were swollen. At the moment, I am on my 10th day in Dr Kwasniewski's Arkadia. I do not take any medicine. With the help of the 'Optimal Diet' and 'Selective Currents' applied by the doctor I have improved rapidly. My chest pain has gone, the blood supply to my legs has improved and they are less swollen. I have lost 3.5 kg and my blood pressure has dropped from 170/100 to 120/60.
Doctor Kwasniewski gave me faith in the effectiveness of his treatment and restored my desire to live. I can not express in words my huge gratitude to the doctor and his personnel.

Significant increase in cholesterol level after optimal nutrition has commenced indicates that the organism regenerate itself and nothing else. When the organism is able to produce a large quantity of cholesterol it is a good symptom and when it cannot is a very bad indication. The lowest cholesterol level is found in people with Coronary Artery Disease just before the decease, when the organism does not have the potency to restore and maintain its life activity.
Cholesterol is needed for proper function of serotonin receptors in the brain. Serotonin is the body's natural "feel-good" chemical. Low cholesterol levels have been linked to aggressive and violent behaviour, depression and suicidal tendencies.
Mother's milk is especially rich in cholesterol and contains a special enzyme that helps the baby utilise this nutrient. Babies and children need cholesterol-rich foods throughout their growing years to ensure proper development of the brain and nervous system.
"Studies of African tribes have shown that intakes of enormous amounts of animal fat not necessarily raises blood cholesterol; on the contrary it may be very low. Samburu people, for instance, eat about a pound of meat and drink almost two gallons of raw milk each day during most of the year. Milk from the African Zebu cattle is much fatter than cow's milk, which means that the Samburus consume more than twice the amount of animal fat than the average American, and yet their cholesterol is much lower, about 170 mg/dl.
Shepherds in Somalia eat almost nothing but milk from their camels. About a gallon and a half a day is normal, which amounts to almost one pound of butter fat, because camel's milk is much fatter than cow's milk. But although more than sixty percent of their energy consumption comes from animal fat, their mean cholesterol is only about 150 mg/dl, far lower than in most Western people.
